[]Perfect Brow []~~~

Hey all.
Just fulfilling a request today by Jo. I was asked to show how I do my brows. Well I thought I might as well include some magazine scans as how the professional people does it.

Sorry that this is in Chinese but the pictures are quite clear and understandable.
[] You can click to enlarge the pictures[]

Brows are quite important I think, because they shape your face and different brow shapes give people different impressions. So it's best to have a natural and tidy brow so you look more awake and defined.
This picture above is how I do my brows. basically the same. I first decide what kind of shape of eye brow I want, I just follow the natural hair line for my brow. Trim off the access long hairs. DO NOT SHAVE UR eye brows to SUPER short or non existent. Unless you want to TOTALLY reshape ur brow.. it will look super un-natural ><

After you plucked away unwanted hair and trimmed ur brow so they are neat. Then you apply ur eyebrow powder. Light colour for inner brow near the nose bridge. and Darker colour towards the end. and blend in so that it looks natural.

Then I set my brow with brow set. and good to go ^___^

The next few pictures is for people with different eyebrow shapes and as to how to fix them.

The picture below shows how to do your brow if u have very faint brows to begin with.

The next picture is for people with dark/thicker brows.

THe next picture is for brow corrections.
the next picture is for uneven toned brows where one is lighter than the other.

The Next picture is for 2 weird shaped brows.

The next picture is for incorrect brow defined shapes. or uneven brows
I personally have Dark harid brows. My natural eye brow hair is quite hard and dense. So I can't really redefined my brow shape. I try to make my brow look a bit lighter ie a dark /medium brown colour so it's matched with my hair. THey said normally your brow should be 2 tones darker than your hair colour.
So all I use Daily is
- Mac Brow Set in Beguile
- Lavshuca's Eye brow set in LB-1

There are many brow items out there. brow pencils, powder, brow gel.
But normally you use a pencil or powder to fill in your brows and use a gel to set ur brow shape.
That's all I can think of. Hope it helps. ^____^
Takes all.. weekend is coming up.. YEAH =D
